In a statement, WGN America president and GM Matt Cherniss called the move a "very difficult decision," saying: "We are proud of this critically acclaimed series, an extraordinary original drama, and are deeply disappointed that such a wonderful show could not find a larger audience. We thank the immensely talented Sam Shaw and Thomas Schlamme, along with the exceptional cast and crew and our great partners at Lionsgate and Skydance, for crafting a masterful series. We are equally grateful to the dedicated fans for their support over the last two seasons."
Added producer and Lionsgate TV chairman Kevin Beggs: "Sam Shaw and Tommy Schlamme gave us a tremendously powerful television series chronicling the lives of those immersed in the race to build an atomic bomb in the dog days of World War II. Their masterful depictions of small victories, devastating betrayals and the high price of freedom will never be forgotten - just as the monstrous power wrought by splitting the atom indelibly scarred our world forever. We are thankful to our partners at Skydance, WGN America, Tribune Entertainment and Hulu for making the series possible and to our many fans in the U.S. and across the globe for watching along with us."

"SHOWTIME PICKS UP SECOND SEASON OF NEW HIT SERIES BILLIONS, THE NETWORK'S HIGHEST-RATED FRESHMAN SERIES PREMIERE EVER
NEW YORK, NY January 26, 2016 On the heels of delivering the biggest premiere week ever for the network, SHOWTIME has picked up its new critically-acclaimed drama BILLIONS for a second season. BILLIONS had the best series debut performance ever for a SHOWTIME original series with 6.5 million viewers, besting the series premiere of RAY DONOVAN by 7 percent (with 6.1 million viewers in June 2013). Starring Oscar® nominee and Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Paul Giamatti and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis, BILLIONS airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc.
BILLIONS is a bold, contemporary drama series that melds the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, BILLIONS weaves a complex, intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey. Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. BILLIONS is created, written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Ocean's Thirteen, Rounders). The series is also created and executive produced by Andrew Ross Sorkin (Too Big To Fail)."
